First time posting a build - hope it gets the thumbs up!
Picked up the frame from @Alban along with wheels and a few extra bits months ago and have slowly been building it into a fun commuter / weekend ride / maybe a bit of touring / do it all bike.
The paintwork seems to get brighter on a grey, rainy day and the animal prints make it feel like you're riding a kids bike.
Tried to keep it as second hand / parts bin as possible but ended up having a new front wheel built as the one that came with the frame was dished and had a fair bit of wear to the hub. Planning on getting a matching rear wheel once I knacker this one & might go up from 7 to 9 speed when I do.
The wheels came with Maxxis Hard drive 2.0 tyres which look sick, but opted for the standard Marathon Plus as I will almost exclusively be riding on roads.
It's running 36t on the front and 11-28t on the back.
Since taking the pics I've swapped out the stem for something slightly shorter with more rise. Planning to find some black brakes, swap the bars for some with a little sweep and also change the shifter. Got a front rack & Rando bag on the way as well.
